i downloaded all 10.000 of those ugly lazy lions nfts and turned them into a mosaic of a person right-clicking

advertising is someone paying someone else for the privilege to shit in your brain

colleague just told me that she wasn't affected by the whole fb thing yesterday because her phone has such a great mobile internet connection

the fuck are you talking about?

worksource was dreamt up by bill clinton, a Democrat, who simultaneously gouged welfare benefits to death in order to fund it.

it was literally nothing but a grift to fully destroy welfare while still claiming that the government is "helping" people who are unemployed

amazon-twitch, fascism, surveillance capitalism 

*amazon-twitch cultivates communities of fascists for years without doing shit about it until it started getting them bad press*

amazon-twitch: if you make your viewers give their phone numbers to amazon, we promise the hate raids will stop

US Politics 

Notice how US political types literally cannot keep track of whether they're talking about the "working class" or "the middle class" across an entire sentence.

Deus Ex 1: a dude you will talk to for 3 minutes points out how the police state benefits more politically from failure to contain disasters than their actual prevention


my phone will autocapitalize words sometimes and thats because my phone is a fucking cop

Testosterone being a controlled substance should be completely unacceptable and I am so frustrated people don’t talk about it more. As it stands, my testosterone is being withheld from me for the next 3 weeks for seemingly no reason at all, the systems saying it’s “state regulations.” If I have to go off T for that long o genuinely don’t know what I’ll do, but I fear even more for the trans people who have had their hormone producing organs removed, for whom not getting testosterone is infinitely more dangerous

the mistake of people who set out to reform racists by being friends with them is having that as their primary strategy, before containment. is your 'friend' actively hurting people (and if they're out yelling slurs online, they are)? if they are, then it's no longer a problem between you and them, it's between them and their victims

"Cargo bikes deliver faster and cleaner than vans, study finds"


"Electric cargo bikes deliver about 60% faster than vans in city centres, according to a study. It found that bikes had a higher average speed and dropped off 10 parcels an hour, compared with six for vans.

"The bikes also cut carbon emissions by 90% compared with diesel vans, and by a third compared with electric vans, the report said."


An aperture card! Used as a very early image tagging/sorting system, you'd have microfilm mounted in a punch card, so you could have a regular punch card organizer/sorter find your images. The DoD loved them because they could store tons and tons of engineering blueprints in an organized, computer-sortable and -searchable way.

They will from the void build new works powered by the willful.

They will control their data, not entrusting their cache with the wizards in their towers.

They will work together to restore the future to it's intended state.

They will win with numbers, resolve, their will, and mutual aid.

They will win because the cruelty of greed is not more powerful that the instinct to survive, nor the nature of freedom.

Shape the void.

Own the wires.

Restore the future.

Once there was a promising young technomancer who abandoned all of his principles and collected everyone's data. He told them it was safe with him, and in time they believed him.

Over time the technomancer realized he had amassed so much information that he became mightier than even the leaders of the world, but his greed and desire for wealth kept him from noticing.

He began to sell his influence to these leaders and got them hooked on his data.

They used it solve crimes, and they used it protect the endangered, and they used it to detect who would likely do crime, and they used it to keep the people divided, and they used it to topple one another's nations.

All the while making the no longer young technomancer even more powerful and wealthy.

The prophecy says that the Technomancer will try to destroy those who oppose him. But the agents of the wires will bring him to his knees by rebuilding what was lost.

we talk about “imposter syndrome” a lot in our communities, but rarely does anyone explain that it’s actually a complex trauma reaction, like cPTSD

capitalism motivates employers to constantly play down our worth; and it winds up gaslighting us into thinking we don’t have value

So I've been in a mood to have a pin made again, and unlike last time I was in this mood, I actually have the finances to get started!

As such, I would like some feedback as to which pin people would be most likely to want.

Here are the four potential designs - There's a poll in the replies.
